Women at the Well: Religion, Resilience, and Grace
What Future for the Philosophy of Religion?
Editor: Dr Russell Re Manning (Bath Spa University, UK)
We are inviting papers for publication in this special issue of Palgrave Communications, published by Palgrave Macmillan (https://www.nature.com/palcomms).
We are living through an exciting time for the philosophy of religion: a time of crisis. There is, it seems, widespread discontent within the discipline about its current state and future directions – indeed about whether it even has a future whatsoever.

The panel will be entitled:
This special issue of TWC explores the potential of fan fiction as an interpretative model to study ancient religious texts.
Fan fiction writers are readers of texts who become writers of their own texts. Fans engage with the universe created by the makers of a specific series, film, or book, to which they refer as “canonical” material. For example, they create new storylines, “repair” plots they do not agree with (fix-it fic), write prequels or sequels, and fill in scenes that are missing.
